Goofs

In # 3 of Season 6, Dorothy is tying Stanley's bow tie and says she remembers the last time she did that: the night of their senior prom. However, in # 22 of Season 6, the entire storyline is about Dorothy being reunited with John Naretti: the guy who stood her up for her senior prom. See more »

Quotes

John: It was an enchanting evening, Dorothy.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak: Some Enchanted Evening. That was the theme of the prom that we never got to.
John: A little more romantic than the theme they had tonight.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak: Hm. "Wear a Condom" is more than a prom theme. It's sort of become the school slogan.

What a Difference a Date Makes (#6.22)
23 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dorothy gets a call from a guy who went to her high school. He invited her to prom but stood her up. After she lost her self esteem, went out with Stan and got pregnant from him. When she mentions it at the diner he says that he did show up but Sophia sent him home because of how he was dressed.

A fun story. Although I don't really like how it ended and think they supported shallowness and caring more about clothes than personality in it and it is supposed to be hat made him "grow up". Please, what a nonsense, but then again it is the beginning of 90's. but hope Sophia doesn't forget it is her fault Dorothy ended up with Stan Still funny
